The Future of Air
If you value breathing than you probably already know about the Climate Summit this december in Copenhagen. This is where and when the big decisions will be made.
Air is the ultimate and final commons, we've already seen the enclosure and privatization the plant world, the seas, human genetics. Now we'll have speculative markets in carbon trading. If there was every something worth fighting for it's a breath of clean air. Some peeps are planning on storming the summit.
For those other Barceloneses who are, like me, so naive to think that banging on some drums might actually have some social use, you hook up with the�Timbalada as part of the�global day of action October 24.
On the personal end of things, know anyone with a space in Copenhagen? These friends just got their space yanked away by the Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center who got cold feet.... apparently their definition of art is restricted to that which does not threaten their funding.
The project�Putting the fun between your legs: The Bike Bloc, is a collaboration between The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination and the�UK Climate Camp (_x0013_www.climatecamp.org.uk). The idea is to design and build a new tool of creative resistance for the�RECLAIM POWER mobilisations taking place in Copenhagen on the 16th of� December 16th, a day of civil disobedience supported by over 200 organisations many from the global south.( _x0001__x0014_www.climate-justice-action.org_x0015_ ). Made from hundreds of recycled bikes, The Bike Bloc will merge device of mass transportation and pedal powered resistance machine, postcapitalist bike gang and art bike carnival.Bike hackers, artists, welders, climate campers and engineers will be working together to design and build�The Bike Bloc across two cities: Bristol (Arnolfini Gallery 15th � 30th Nov, � as part of C-words exhibition -�www.arnolfini.org.uk and somewhere in Copenhagen (4th- 18th� Dec.) The trouble is we no longer have a space or support resources in Copenhagen, which with only 8 weeks to go puts us under immense pressure.If you have any idea of places, organisations, or, of collectives that would be interested in hosting this project, and are prepared to walk the talk, or would like to be involved please contact us as soon as possible.
